Scottish-Korean cellist Su-a Lee is one of Scotland’s most versatile, adventurous and charismatic musicians. She works extensively in the UK classical and folk music scenes and is a founding member of the highly innovative Mr. McFall’s Chamber and a long-standing member of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. She has worked with rock icons Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce (Cream); jazz musicians Peter Erskine (Weather Report) and Thomas Strønen; World Music sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan from India and Scottish folk pioneer Martyn Bennett. While she is deeply rooted in her Scottish home, Su-a and her cello have appeared all over the world, from South America to the Arctic Circle.
On Dialogues, Su-a Lee collaborates in a series of 15 duos with leading Scottish and International folk musicians. Says Su-a: “Playing solo is not really my thing. I am energised by working with other people, especially these people. I didn’t want my debut solo album to be about me taking the limelight. This album celebrates the musician featured on each track. Each piece reveals something of their roots, identity and inspirations, while also striking a chord with me. The album is about finding my own voice and a voice for Scottish folk cello in general, as well as the interaction of two voices. Welcome to our dialogue."
